The People of Enterprise World 2016

For the last 20 years, ERP has been the dominant enterprise system, automating Campaign to Cash. For the next 20 years, Enterprise Information Management (EIM) will be the dominant enterprise system, automating Engagement to Insight. With more opportunities than ever to maximize your investment in OpenText solutions, Enterprise World is your roadmap to the future of information management and a better way to work.

Joining me on the Enterprise World main stage will be OpenText executives, Steve Murphy, President; Muhi Majzoub, EVP of Engineering and Information Technology; and our Chief Marketing Officer, Adam Howatson. Together, we will explore how disruptive innovations are impacting the enterprise and information across all industries, with a focus on the role EIM plays in enabling digital transformation. We are excited to bring you the latest developments in EIM as we evolve from managing systems of record and engagement to empowering with systems of insight.

Along with our business leaders, the conference will feature some of the industry’s most respected thought leaders and visionaries. Guest speakers, including Tracy Costello (CIO, Insure the Box), Craig Chu (CIO, Asia, Westpac Banking Corporation), and Tara Mulrooney (CTO, Alberta Energy Regulator), will share their strategic perspectives on EIM and how they are leveraging disruptive technologies to capitalize on opportunities the digital revolution presents.

Colonel Chris Hadfield will also be joining us as a keynote speaker. Through his 21 years as an astronaut, three spaceflights, and 2600 orbits of Earth, Colonel Hadfield has become a worldwide sensation as he infused a sense of wonder into our collective consciousness. I am looking forward to speaking with the former commander of the International Space Station to hear what “the man who made space cool again” has to say about digital technology, space exploration, and the next frontier.

To show our appreciation we are ending the event with Nashville’s finest—the Grand Ole Opry—and performances on Thursday night by world-class entertainers Josh Turner, Easton Corbin, Crystal Gayle, Dailey & Vincent, and Elizabeth Cook.

The true value of Enterprise World is in the people. Information is fundamental to business, however, it is the ways that people use information that truly causes disruption and innovation to happen. People create, capture, exchange, process, protect, and add value to information. We host this conference for our customers, partners, industry leaders, and our colleagues. With so many people converging in Nashville, this year’s conference is sure to be the most dynamic and compelling conference to date.
